I had the bittersweet experience of a funeral for a friend this week. A fine celebration of a life lived well and welcome words expressing not her bravery fighting her cancer but her anger at having to leave before she wanted and her frustration at not having completed her mission to make the world a better place (though for sure, she made a big dent in that one).
What happens after life? Is there an Afterlife? Heaven, hell, return to the earth, the soul’s onward journey – it’s the subject of thousands of words on the web, in scholarly papers and the popular press, in debates and bar room musings.
